YaY!! This is the 2nd to last A to Z Challenge post!! I’ve made it!

Anyway, Yummy!! What foods do you find absolutely Yummy?

Did I mention in any of my posts that I gave up sugar, bread, snacks, junk food of any kind during the month of February and did really well? I actually lasted more than two months until last week when I went on the D.C. trip with my son. It was difficult to keep a regulated diet on a trip like that when food was sometimes preplanned. It was either eat it or starve.

This is where I got the idea for the elimination challenge.

But about two weeks into that Challenge, I went out to dinner with my boys and my youngest ordered a Smores dessert. It was a warm chocolate brownie with big melted marshmallows on top and some vanilla ice cream. The smell alone made my mouth water. I kept reaching my spoon over to scoop off a marshmallow and the boys (my husband included) would yell, “Don’t do it!” LOL! They were my conscious and spoke up loud and clear. I didn’t eat any of it, but I wanted to … badly!

But really with time, it got easier. At birthday parties, it was easy to pass up the cake. I began eating more healthy foods like Greek yogurt and fresh fruits. I found myself not as hungry and didn’t feel the need to snack as much. However, I didn’t really lose much weight. Only 5 lbs. Although, my clothes did begin to fit loosely. I even started walking a minimum of 4 days a week, sometimes more.

Have you ever done anything like this before? How did you do? Let me know if you’re going to try this 21 Day Challenge?
